MARSHFIELD – Krista Hoglund, Chief Actuary and Financial Officer at Security Health Plan of Wisconsin, Inc., is among 21 women selected for the Carol Emmott Fellowship’s class of 2021.
The Carol Emmott Fellowship was established in 2016 to help address the underrepresentation of women in leadership roles in health care. Each year, this 14-month program brings together women from across the nation, working to increase both their leadership capacity and impact in their communities. During the program participants are paired with a mentor and complete an impact project in their health communities.
Hoglund is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics. She has been with Security Health Plan since 2008, serving in multiple roles in the actuarial and business intelligence departments, and was named Chief Actuary and Financial Officer in 2019.
Marshfield Clinic Health System Chief Executive Officer Susan Turney, M.D., sits on the Carol Emmott Fellowship board, though she is not part of the fellowship selection committee.
“Since its inception, this Fellowship has been an exciting way to invest in women leaders and advance the cause of gender equity in the health care field,” Turney said. “Krista is so well-deserving of this recognition and opportunity. She is an exceptional leader, and I know she will use the enrichment of the Fellowship experience to empower those around her professionally and personally.”
“Krista has a terrific sense of leadership that guides her team at Security Health Plan,” Security Health Plan Chief Executive Officer Julie Brussow said. “She is a transformative leader who brings valuable insight, direction and engagement to our organization. Through the Carol Emmott Fellowship, Krista will further refine her skills, which will not only benefit our organization but carry throughout the communities we serve.”
“I’m honored to be part of this group of women – their diverse backgrounds, knowledge and experience in health care leadership is invaluable,” Hoglund said. “This is a wonderful opportunity to become a better leader and share what I learn with my colleagues at Security Health Plan and Marshfield Clinic Health System.”
